In the early days Juliaetta was originally called Schupferville after Rupert Schupfer who was an initial homesteader in the area. Later, Charles Snyder, another rancher in the area, had a post office put on his land and named it Juliaetta after his daughters, Julia and Etta. Mr. Snyder moved to the present town site and the name Juliaetta transferred with him. The first commercial establishment opened in 1882 and the town incorporated in 1892 when the Northern Pacific Railroad was extended into the area. The town quickly grew into to a thriving community of 500 by 1903. The railroad is now the Ed Corkill Memorial Bike Trail and links the towns of Kendrick and Juliaetta together.
